Gary and Ruby’s place is unbeatable. The space is immaculate and private, and Gary and Ruby introduced many thoughtful touches of home (stocked fridge, sharing porch space, local recommendations). Enjoy!

If you need to be near the capital, this is your spot. Less than five minute walk to legislative buildings and beautiful historic homes to enjoy along the way! Clean, cozy place with pleasant water view to boot.
